I decided to join the ride for 2018 around June of 2017, 4 months before our second child (Austin) joined our family. Now after having two beautiful kids, and reflecting on our time as teenagers, the work that Youth Focus does really struck a cord with my wife (Andrea) and I. We had different experiences at school, with bullying etc, but we both agreed that there were certainly some tough times. Youth Focus is an organisation that is committed to provide unlimited help with no questions asked.
This will be my first time participating in the ride and Arc Infrastructure’s fourth time and we are all looking forward to raising much-needed funds and awareness of our children’s and youth’s continuing battle against depression, self-harm and suicide.
Over the next 5 months 12 of us from Arc Infrastructure will all be riding at least 3000km in preparation to ride 700km in 4.5 days in March of 2018 (that's from Albany, up through the Wheatbelt, back into Perth - the equivalent of over 1,500 laps of Subi oval)!
It’s a big challenge but the whole team are giving it all we have got in the hope that we can make a difference in someone’s life.
You’ll be happy to know that we cover all of our costs to participate in the ride, to ensure that every cent of your donation goes to Youth Focus which will enable them to provide free counselling to those in need.
Every donation helps with this effort and no amount is too little. Please give generously what you can and together we may change the life of a young West Australian.
Thank you very much for your donation I really appreciate your help and remember that you are helping to make a difference!!
